Mambo mengine hata kuyatafutia maelezo inakuwa kazi:
Dowans ya Tanzania haijulikani na mtu yoyote. Hata Rais wala baraza la mawaziri hawaijui...
Hii ndiyo Tanzania....'nchi ya amani na utulivu'
Mafisadi wanajizungushia maneno na kukoleza akili za watanzania kama watakavyo...
Na tunaye Rais, Waziri mkuu, waziri wa mambo ya ndani, Nishati na madini, na watendaji wengine.....ndiyo serikali....!
nadhani afadhali tujisemee tu wazi kuwa HAKUNA UONGOZI TZ....ndiyo maana haya yote yanafanyika...ina 'tuna amani na utulivu' tusiulize lolote, tunayataka wenyewe! na haya ni machache tu maana nchi hii ina wizara takriban 30 an ushee, na kila wizara 'ulaji uliopo, ni kila waziri analijua lake...JK kwatu!!
Mungu atafumbua macho ya Umma na umma utachukua jukumu la kujikomboa....Tazama na East African inazidi kutujuza...

Powerful businessman and ruling party MP for Igunga in Tabora, Rostam Aziz, is to be a beneficiary in the Dowans Tanzania award.
According to the proceedings from the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce also known as the International Commercial Court (ICC), which recently awarded Dowans Holdings S.A. and Dowans Tanzania $65 million as compensation for breach of contract by the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco), Mr Aziz was appointed Dowans' attorney-in-fact as far back as 2005 "to manage the company's affairs outside the Republic of Costa Rica."
According to the resolutions of the Dowans Holdings board of directors, two directors of the company, Bernal Zamora Arce and Noemy del Carmen Cespedes Palma, granted in the name and on behalf of the company, a power of attorney in favour of Mr Aziz.
Powers granted to Mr Aziz include: "To transact, manage, carry on and do all and every business matters and things requisite and necessary or in any manner connected with or having reference to the business and affairs of the company and, for such purposes, to conduct all correspondences appertaining to such businesses and affairs."
The directors further granted Mr Aziz the power "to open and to close bank accounts... and to draw cheques on our accounts... and to sign all kinds of documents in connection with our accounts or money," read part of the resolutions signed by the firm's secretary, Mrs Palma.
It goes further to give Mr Aziz, the immediate former CCM treasurer and shareholder in the short lived RVR Rail Consortium that brought together Kenya and Uganda railways, the power to "pay, settle, deduct and allow all taxes, rates, charges, deductions, expenses and all other payments and outgoings whatsoever due and payable or to become due and payable for or on account of any property, whether movable or immovable and whether in possession or in action, now or hereafter belonging to us or to which we may become entitled."
Mr Aziz has consistently denied having any links to the Richmond company that was involved in the scandal that saw former prime minister Edward Lowassa resign his post (see Box). Dowans is the successor company to Richmond.
According to documents tabled in the arbitration proceedings, which The EastAfrican has seen, one Mr Gire, a cofounder of Richmond (REDVCO) who faces a court case in Tanzania over the same issue, is said to have told the ICC that the owner of the company is Mr Aziz.
The ICC was told Mr Aziz was such a "powerful and influential" individual that some laws were amended in his favour. The Richmond scandal was the subject of a Parliamentary probe that led to the resignation of the Mr Lowassa.
According to the report of the proceedings, the ICC accepted the finding that Mr Aziz was so "powerful and influential" as to have diverted the contract to the claimant, Dowans, outside the Public Procurement Act.
The contract went to favour "his friends and himself through the claimant and to have influenced the MEM (Ministry of Energy and Minerals) to force Tanesco's Mr Hans Lottering to sign the POA (agreement for emergence power supply)."
Mr Lottering testified before the ICC that he was told that "something would happen" to him if he did not sign the POA. He was formerly Tanesco's general manager-transmission under Net Group Solutions of South Africa.
The evidence presented before the Tribunal shows the involvement of Mr Aziz in getting the whole procurement out of the PPA and diverting the lucrative contract to a "business of him and his business friend" derived from the testimony of Henry Surtee.
The Tribunal accepted the testimony of Mr Lottering that, "even using the international tendering (open tender method) which is the most inefficient and the longest method, if not interfered with, Tanesco would have procured the POA more efficiently and within a much shorter period than the period of 18 months that the Ministry of Energy and Minerals took to procure POA through the committee formed outside the law."
Last week, Minister for Energy and Minerals William Ngeleja named the owners of Dowans Tanzania as Dowans Holdings S.A and Portek Systems and Equipment PTE Ltd.
He named the directors of Dowans Tanzania as Tice (Canadian), Gopalakrishnan Balachandran (Indian) and Hon Sung Woo (Singapore). Others are Guy Arthur Picard (Canadian), Suleiman Mohammed Yahya Al Adawi (Oman) and Stanley Munai from Kenya.
Under the country's Company Ordinance Act, there is no restriction on owners' citizenship or country of origin of a company.
A firm can be registered in Tanzania even if its owners are 100 per cent foreigners.
"The nature of owners is not a concern when opening a company in the country; it could be owned 100 per cent by foreign individual(s) or corporate firm(s)," Business Registration and Licensing Agency chief executive officer Esteriano Mahingila said.
The CEO also confirmed that the Dowans files contained the same list of directors as mentioned by the minister of energy and minerals.
"These files are public documents, whoever wants to peruse or even photographing them are allowed," Mr Mahingila told The East African, "the file is here."
The government was yet to decide whether to pay the $65.8milion (about Tshs 94 billion) to the owners of Dowans Holdings SA and Dowans Tanzania.
It is noted in the award ruling presented for registration at the high court that the practice regarding arbitrations is that an award has to be registered with the High Court for it to be a decree as if one issued by the High Court.
However, if a party isn't satisfied with an award, "there are two routes available either to apply to the Tanzanian court to remit the award to the arbitrators for reconsideration of certain issues or to apply to the high court to set aside the Award.
"To apply to set aside an award, it must be that the Award was improperly obtained or that the arbitrators misconducted themselves," reads part of the ruling by the ICC....."
Sasa tukirudia kuuliza swali; kampuni ya Dowans Holdings S.A inatoka wapi watatupa jibu gani ambalo tunaweza kuliamini? Ni kweli kwamba tunachozungumzia ni Dowans Tatu:
a. Dowans Holdings S.A ya UAE
b. Dowans Holdings S.A ya Costa Rica
c. Dowans Tanzania Limited ya Tanzania
Kwanini kwenye nyaraka hizi za kwetu wanasema kuwa ni kampuni ya Dowans Holdings S.A ya Falme za Kiarabu ndiyo iliyochukua mkataba wa Richmond lakini kwenye nyaraka za ICC na US wanasema ni kampuni ya Dowans Holdings S.A ya Costa Rica?
Hivi ikitokea Dowans Holdings S.A ya India na Dowans Holdings S.A ya Mexico tunaweza kudhania kuwa ni kampuni moja ile ile?
Na tunao hata wale wanpenda kuitwa learned brothers and sisters wengi tu. Sema tatizo lao nao utaalamu na usomi wa taaluma zao za sheria wanshindwa hata haya mambo obvious.
Tunaoa viongozi tuliwapa dhamana amabao hawajui nguvu ya TEKNOHAMA kuwa sasa watu hatuwezi kudanganywa ovyo ovyo kama zamani. Viongozi hawajui kutochukua hatua sahihi kunafanya watu waichukie serikali na rais wake.
Wanabaki kuwa kundi fulani au mtu fulani anachochea fujo kumbe wao hasa ndo kiini cha instability.
Mwalimu Nyerere mwenyewe alikuwa mjanja mbinu zake za kimabavu alizotumia kipindi kile alingundua hazina nafasi kadiri muda ulivyooenda . Mkapa, na sasa huyu JK akili zao bado ziko kimngando mgando.
Lets wait and see watu wakianza kumwaga damu ndo watajua. kama hawaoni yanayotokea Misri.Tunisia Libya ,nchi ambazo ziko far much bbter than tanzania basi...........................................
Nadhani kuna upotoshaji mkubwa,kuhusu hii Do 1s..siwezi amini kuwa sub company ya nchi moja ikatakeover majukumu ya co. Nyingine .
Bado wanamawazo ya kizamani kwamba watanzania hawana attitude ya kusoma between the lines mara nyingi wana scan read tu, huku ona hata walivyochomeka mambo ambayo hayakuongelewa na kupitishwa kwenye bunge wakati wa mswada wa sheria ya uchaguzi? Unafikiri ni mbahati mbaya? they know how to play with words its becoming a culture ona hata kwa kanuni wanasema hakuna aliyebadilisha ila tumetafsiri, huu wizi wa kalamu huu Mungu atuponye! Tanzania ya dot. com wana some hadi nukta na mkato kuelewa maana halisi ya jambo.
hivi huyu ROAM ni nani anatusumbua hivi? yaani wote tunshindwa kumdhiti kweli?
..halafu rex attorneys wanakuja juu wanapoambiwa utetezi wao haukuwa na tija wakati kesi hii hata intern wa shule ya sheria UDSM angeweza kushinda!
Dah! Hii ni itasaidia kama kithibitisho tosha kwa watanzania wenzetu waliojitokeza kupinga malipo ya dowans kule mahakama kuu...kampuni hailewiki..ni michezo yakuigiza
MKJJ nchni ikisha kuwa na Rais ambaye ndiye kinara wa Rushwa mambo hayawezi kwenda hata kidogo, maana hamna anayeweza kumnyoshea mwingine kidole mi nadhani hata hii PCCB hamna haja ya kuwepo nikuongezea Watanzania Mzigo wa mishahara kwa Taasisi hisiyo na uwezo wala nia ya dhati ya kutekeleza majukumu yake
Ni sahihi..hata mie sioni umuhimu wa PCCB. na zaidi sana usalama wa taifa huenda wamelala au hawaheshimiwi kwa maana ya taarifa zao kupewa uzito!
Kweli kuna watu wako juu ya sheria..
we are tired with your stories na majungu, tunachohitaji watanzania ni umeme na si SIASA. wanaoukutuma waambie tumechoka na hadith tunahitaji umeme. akina sitta na mwakyembe wako wapi??? wametukimbia tumebaki na mateso ya umeme
kwakweli tumekuchoka na ideas zako unazotumwa na mabwana zako za uchochezi.... tunachohitaji ni umeme....
Technology kwani nani kazuia kusiwepo umeme Tanzania? Serikali nzima ni CCM - Rais wao, sera zao, sheria zao viongozi wao, watendaji wao kila kitu chao. Wanashindwa nini kutatuta tatizo? Kama tatizo ni umeme tu kinawashinda kitu gani kulitatua unless ni viongozi waoga, wasiojiamini na wasio na uthubutu wa kuchukua hatua zinazopaswa.
Nadhani weye ndiye ambaye tumekuchoka. Mwenzetu ametuletea kielelezo cha nguvu kuonyesha jinsi wezi wa Dowans na washirika wao serikalini walivyotuibia na kutudanganya, badala ya kugutuka na kutaka kuwajibishwa kwao wewe unamponda. Huu ndio unaoitwa ujeuri wa kifisadi. Mwizi siku hizi ndiye shujaa. Hivi tunakwenda wapi? Unataka umeme mwingine utakaoletwa kwa mtindo huu wa kifisadi. Nadhani wewe u mmoja wao na ndiye unayetupeleka kuzimuni. Ushindwe tena nasema ushindwe milele yote. Kituo.
mbona unajichannganya mkuu
unasema mumemchok na ideas zake hapo hapo una sema mnachohitaji ni uememe kitu ambacho si tu tatizo bali limekuwa sugu.
Sasa umeme utakuaje bila watu kuoyesha tatzio liko wapi . Umeme hauiji tu kwa kwenda tu msikitini au kanisani. Na kinachotakiwa si tu bora umeme tunataka umeme bora .
Wake up . huu sio uchochezi wewe ndio mnafiki. unataka kumpaka kikwete na Ngeleja wake mafuta kwa mgongo wa chupa.
